Black Mask Joins Season 2's List of Big Bads

Batwoman is looking to go all out in it's second season. With a new character taking up the Bat-mantle, having one season big bad would certainly be enough. But that wasn't enough for showrunner Caroline Dries! According to Entertainment Weekly, Batwoman's second season will be introducing yet another big bad to menace the streets of Gotham! For those of you who saw Bird of Prey (back when movie theaters were a thing), this is the same character that Ewan McGregor played. Dries went on to explain the complex relationship the new Batwoman would have with Black Mask, his False Face Society and the drug market in Gotham.

While Ryan never used drugs, she was in a relationship where somebody was using drugs and it's ultimately what got Ryan put away in jail. So, it's this idea that Ryan is this innocent woman and if she were white, per se, she might not have had the same punishment [that] she, as an innocent Black woman, had to go through. That's a huge piece of her backstory, so that's something we're exploring this year. Batwoman has this particular vendetta against the False Face Society because the idea of drugs permeating the city and nobody taking any responsibility for it strikes at her core.

With less than a week left until the return of the Arrowverse and the debut of Ryan Wilder's Batwoman, Caroline Dries as really set the stage for a fantastic and massive sophomore year! Let us know what you think in the comments below and in the forum! Don't forget to follow us on Twitter.

Oh yes, Black Mask is a really good addition to the villain roster of season 2.
I hope he will be in several episodes.
I guess rather in the 2nd half of the season.....I guess otherwise we would have heard from him earlier.
*EDIT* Ah yes, Caroline already confirmed him for "later in the season".

I'm going to be very interested in seeing how Batwoman's version of Black Mask is different from the big screen version from Birds Of Prey.There actually was loose version of the character in a first season episode of Gotham.That character was then killed in the beginning of season 2.
